Description
Pre-Colombian Taino Jade Axe (900-1500 AD)

The most numerous category of polished stone sculpture emerging from the Taíno world of the ancestral Caribbean islands are ceremonial axes and blades, which take many forms and were an important medium of exchange. Ceremonial blades made of different types of greenstone, both local and, as in this case, imported, have been recovered in large numbers. These axes, known as petaloid celts for their resemblance to flower petals, also served as dedicatory offerings, which have a long history on the Caribbean, and the mainland in Mesoamerica.
